posted on 09/19/2016

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 19, 2016 – USA Gymnastics learned today that Laurie Hernandez is one of the Olympic athletes whose private medical information has been leaked by the hackers who illegally accessed the drug-testing database of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). In keeping with official protocols of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and WADA, Hernandez submitted and was approved for a therapeutic-use exemption (TUE), the proper paperwork for any prescribed medications that an athlete takes for an illness or condition that requires the use of a medication included on the WADA Prohibited Drug List. By virtue of the TUE, Hernandez was granted a one-time use for acute inflammation in February/March 2016 and has not broken any drug-testing regulation.
